  • The Book of Love and Creation

In this bold, bracing, and tremendously practical new work of spiritual psychology, author and medium Paul Selig takes the channeled teachings begun in his acclaimed I Am the Word into dramatic new territory. In this fresh revelation, the invisible teachers who speak through Selig actually instruct readers on how to develop their own powers of intuition, clairvoyance, and inner knowing.

Absolutely loved the book... the simplicity of the advice, the depth of the information, the clarity of the delivery and all of that mixed with unexpected touches of humour... a must read/listen for anyone that is embarking in a spiritual journey or is already on their way.

A book that will help you understand yourself, others and the world better; a book of love, forgiveness and letting go.

I can't wait for the other 2 books (I Am The Word and The Book of Knowing and Worth) to become available in audible... hopefully read by the author himself as this book was... his voice and tone couldn't be any better suited for the job!!

I found the material very superficial, incomplete and uninformative. Sonia gives you a very general, sketchy overview of each chakra (which you can find in much more depth on the internet or in any other book in the subject)... then proceeds to provide examples that sound fictitious and, for lack of another word, downright "cheesy".

Disappointing audiobook... it might be that the printed version provides more in depth information but if the audio is any indication, I am much more inclined to seek knowledge in the subject from a completely different source.

This was my first book on relationships and I found it to be surprisingly funny, easy to follow, easy to listen to and in some instances even easy to relate to. She establishes some "rules of the game" that range from common sense to absurdity (If you are unlucky enough to have been born with curly hair and are not willing to straighten it regularly... sorry! You might as well have signed a contract for maidenhood with the universe!).

My opinion: it is a good audiobook for all of us who find themselves without a loving partner (my husband died and now that I am ready to face the dating world again I find myself without any idea of what do to or how to go about doing it) but wanting to find one. Just be prepared to laugh at a few of just plain outrageous statements and just pick the advice that suits your personality. She does give good advice and good ideas! Overall I recommend this audiobook.

Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

Discover the revolutionary formula that heals the source of illness and disease, even success and relationship issues. According to Stanford, Harvard, Mayo Clinic, the CDC, and other research centers, there is one source of up to 95% of all illness and disease, and it is not your thoughts, emotions, conscious beliefs, actions, or even your DNA. Solomon revealed this source more than 3000 years ago.

Any additional comments?

95% of the book is spent on telling you how wonderful the code is; how it heals everything: from a terminal cancer to a stubbed toe; how many people it has helped; all kinds of testimonies, stories and cases, and so much promotional material that I almost gave up on learning what the famous code was about.

If you want to learn about the code and how to do it, go to the very last chapter and skip the rest (of course that you can find that exact same information on the internet and save yoursefl a few bucks). I can't say if the code works or not... so far I haven't had the need to try it out. In regards to the book, however, I found it tiresome with all the unending and annoying propaganda. I would have much prefered a shorter version centered in the subject.

My 2 cents...-

The Book of Awakening, by poet and teacher Mark Nepo, provides small doses of what really matters, simple truths and stories from everyday lives, plus inspiration from the great wisdom traditions. Each day’s entry is accompanied by simple, yet profound, practices designed to help us live the life we want by being present to the life we have. For, in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, “You are that which you are seeking.”

I am not sure what I was expecting from this audiobook but it certainly wasn't what I found... I started listening to it and after the first 10 minutes I was about to turn the thing off and write this purchase off. I am so glad I didn't!! I stuck to it and found... revelation! Every day a story, a quote, a fable... every day the going deeper into the meaning of those... and every day a message, a lesson, a knowledge that cuts through the barriers and goes straight to your heart.

There are so many jewels in this audio book! They are small and clear and bright... things that, after you listen to them, you know you already knew them but for some reason you were never aware of the knowing. Beautifully narrated by the author and so inspirational that temporarily made a poet out of me.

I really recommend this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Boundaries to be better than the print version?

I have not read the printed version of this book.

What did you like best about this story?

It gives very pointed and practical advice about creating and maintaining boundaries. Too many references to the bible but the advice is sound.

Which scene was your favorite?

It was a good audio book overall
